to have a better close than romney. one was the storm. sandy. there's no question that happened. there's no question that the hug if you will, with governor christie played to what people wanted to see. i'm looking at the iowa poll that was done over the weekend. they asked the question "who's the stronger leader?" in iowa romney had a slight advantage, now it's obama 50% to 42%. i agree with what john said earlier. iowand nevada have been put away. i don't think new hampshire and wisconsin have. but i think that's reflect in that poll. the second that's occurred is every single poll i've seen shows more optimism about the economy than there was a month ago. not people aren't off the charts mind you, but a third of the people think the economy is in good shape. another 20% think it's getting in better shape and those are better numbers than the summer. >> rose: let me ask about florida, john harris, and pennsylvania. >> it looks like florida is most likely in romney's camp. not certain. it seems to me that if obama wins florida he's going to win a bunch of other states and we'll have a

. let's talk about the president talking about sandy and laying out his big domestic accomplishment. >> also talking about. when the president talks about an america for everybody, that's a vision that a lot of different parts of this country can see themselves in. women, veterans, african-american, immigrant, latino, asian. that's part of the strength of his message. the thing that's been so beautiful to me is as tragic as sandy was, it's meant the president has come back to an essential thing. not just his campaign, not just of his presidency but of his life's work which is we're in this together. how do we make sure -- i read something he was saying. everybody has to have a fair shot. the point being, we're able o come back to that mess a.m. i think that's so important. i also think it is part of what -- if you're one of those vote who are have not made up your mind and you're hearing that, you've got to be thinking, you mow what, yeah, that's what i want. i want that optimistic pfuture where everybody has a chance. he's not evil. >> there's something about sort of how the disast

this on sandy or a divisive primary. you can blame this on the following. you have a republican party that no longer reflect what is america looks like. you have a republican party that was rightly or wrongly, perceived to be disenfranchising latinos and women -- [overlapping dialogue] >> the popular vote, it is evenly divided. >> look at the gender -- >> dirty divisive -- [overlapping dialogue] >> excuse me. the election is over. look at the returns. obama won the latino voters -- >> it doesn't matter how we -- >> let me finish my point. >> julie, finish your point. >> as i said, rightly or wrongly, you have a republican party perceived by latinos as wanted being on there side, women, want on their side. if the republican party doesn't understand they have to expand their brand and they are no longer representing white men, they will continue to lose. the more they fight that fact, the longer you will have results like this. >> promoting riskal responsibility only represents the white male brand. >> the race is over. we are discussing demographics. >> unwaivering supporter from barac

of the wild cards that could have an impact on the election is super storm sandy. will voters in ravaged areas be able to cast votes tomorrow? officials are scrambling to try to make it easier. we'll take a look at that ahead. we'rwith questions fromtump sombing elections.kies do you know where your polling place is? maybe somewhere around my house. mine's just, right over that way. well you can find out exactly where it is using bing elections. it's a good day for politics. which way do you lean politically? conservative. republican. well, using the bing news selector you can find news from whichever way you lean. (together) social on this side, financial. which party is currently predicted to win a majority in the senate? the republicans? would you make a bet on that? no. are you chicken? >>> to me this election's fairly simple. who's more likely to restore the middle class, to give poor people a chance to work their way into it, to build a 21st century american economy with the good jobs of tomorrow? i think it's the candidate that got off the campaign trail and went to work on hurricane sa
for millions in the northeast still recovering from the last week's devastating hurricane sandy. powerful winds, rain and snow -- i mean, it was blizzard conditions around here in many places last night -- knocking out power to many who had only recently gotten it back. in new york and new jersey alone, 60,000 people are again in the dark. some transit service also taking a hit. the long island railroad, some call it the wrong island failroad, suspended all service due to weather. and airlines canceled at least 1300 u.s. flights. mean time, new stories of unbelievable hardship are starting to emerge again. this is video -- look at this. look at that shot in staten island, new york. folks there cannot catch a break. snow now covering piles and piles of debris and garbage that they've been waiting for someone to take. we're told the smell of sewage is getting stronger and that face masks are now being handed out to help people deal with it. signs like this also popping up. this one reads: obama, fema, help! folks are angry and frustrated after learning that fema offices closed yesterday due to ba

3. >> update on the response to hurricane sandy. >> afternoon, everybody. i will be brief because i figure you got more questions. some of the highlights from the last couple of days. as of this morning, around 6:00 a.m., and we will have numbers later this afternoon be looked at you, but 317,000 folks have registered in the three states for individual assistance. and a total of -- is three had a 20 million for the three states. the yesterday northeaster had impacts appeared in many cases precautionary measures were taken to shut down operations. there was concern about that, but it was based on the forecast the day before when decisions were made, said those were done in coordination with state and local officials. power outages increased slightly. power outages due to the nor'easter did increase the number of customers without power, and as of this morning, about 42,000 people in addition to those who have lost power from sandy are reported out. that number is down from the original impacts of the northeastern, but we continue to cede power restoration. the numbers improved. with
government is going to do, like roads and bridges, and now we're in the middle after hurricane sandy like fema. and i think dean is a very interesting question that befuddles me because it started with jimmy carter, one of jimmy carter's, numbered bureaucratic innovations was fema. and reagan did was take it scarce and did we take it certificate didn't staff it with professional. then in 92 bush senior got burned with a response to hurricane andrew in florida. and clinton wrote in his autobiography, i made a mental note at the time, i'm not going to get elected because of my disaster management record but i could sure lose this job i'll make darshan going to hire a pro that will really with fema into shape, which he did. and then bush junior comes in the. he has a government agency after eight years, which everybody likes. no one is mad at fema in 2000. and then bush, for nobody is reason to me, besides forget it, let's start privatizing functions again. let's put and political cronies again. let's go back to the old way. and he got burned. and so obama comes back and put in a pro. people
. after the first campaign, romney was ahead for a it little bit. around halloween, the sandy news started to kick in. president obama went ahead by point or less. do you see sandy play in? >> it robbed the challenger. it brought them for 3 or four days, six news cycles. the core issue was the economy. he wasn't able to get that message through for a few days. to some voters, it probably reminded some voters that this guy is reaching across party lines and reaching to the governor from new jersey. they're sitting in for the first time. i think it did help obama by freezing things for a few days and giving him that commander in chief aura. >> there is an important role that the federal government plays. romney and paul ryan talked about the government needs to get out of the way. >> romney specifically said he would cut fema. >> the last thing people want when catastrophe strikes is the government to get out of the way. >> some people remember obama came in in the middle of a crisis and he was cool headed. they were reminded that this guy doesn't react as much emotionally as we like to saee
that was hard hit by hurricane sandy and there were all sorts of questions, gwen, about whether enough people-- people who wanted to vote would be able to vote. we saw the terrible devastation there along the shoreline. but the results are in, at least as much as it takes for the associated press to make a call. >> ifill: i have read more amazing stories today about pregnant women who were on the way to the hospital who decided to vote. people who stood in the dark in lines in order to vote. in spite of what happened with that hurricane. >> woodruff: comparisons being made to hurricane katrina, not only new jersey and new york. we also want to say this brings the electoral college projected total at this point-- it's early in the evening-- to 79 electoral votes for president obama 82 electoral vote for governor romney. we know we need 270-- they need 270 in order to become president. >> ifill: of course we have to talk about new jersey because david and mark, chris christie, the governor of the new jersey, royaled the wate a littlebit this week by actually having kind things to say about pres
number that was interesting to me. hurricane sandy, fully 42% of those responding to this first round in the exit polling said it was important, it was a reason, one of the reasons for their vote. that's more than one might have thought hurricane sandy didn't effect 42% of the country. those people are going by and large for obama pretty big. the question then arises, okay, well how many people were for him anyway? we don't know. it's sort of interesting. what it tells us, we can't tell. exit polls can only tell you so much. it's interesting. >> megyn: we have been talking about how these exit polls are not necessarily to be trusted entirely. it would be helpful if we explain that a little bit. brit, you were on the air back in 2004 when we got information in and back then they were saying that john kerry was way ahead, he was way ahead. >> brit: he was winning virginia and all these places. people are, we had the meeting with our decision team which i can thought then and think now is the best in the business. they were looking over the exit poll data and our pollster then said the u
sandy, did that suppress turnout? >> we'll see what the final numbers say at the end of the day. we know both the states and municipalities took every step they could to make sure their voters' votes would count. the the state of new jersey even allowed you to e-mail your ballot in. all the states adapted. hopefully it didn't depress turnout put we haven't seen the final numbers. >> suarez: in 20 minutes there will be another round of closing. what will you and the campaign be looking at in particular? >> we're taking a look at the state of virginia and florida, which look like a couple of the closest states on the map. those states could go late into the night. there's no question there are still folks voting in line in south florida who have been there for a while. so i think that will take time to close out. new hampshire, voting continues for a little while more. and then i assume allize will turn to ohio and the midwest. >> suarez: ben lebolt from the obama campaign. thank you. >> ifill: we can tell you you the associated press projected a winner in three states, kentucky, vermont,
the big telethon to raise funds for the hurricane sandy relief effort. i may never endorse candidates, but i'm allowed to tell you how wholeheartedly i endorse this message that if you have the means to do so, even at a small level, if you have the means to do so, you should donate to help the relief efforts for this disaster. if you want to donate by phone, the number is easy to remember. 1-800-help-now. online, you can go to redcross right lane. or you can donate $10 by texting to 90999. when the power came back on in parts of lower manhattan tonight, late this afternoon and early tonight, you could hear the cheering from the lower east side of manhattan. sweet relief, it's been a long week. there was some cheering here at our offices in midtown when we saw the live feed come through. tlougt the night, the lights have been coming on in our homes as well, which is a cause for e relief and lots of gratitude and lots of worry and consternation over the places that are still a long way out from coming back. a point of personal privilege, if you have not donated, think about whether you
. this is from the new york city board of elections. it regards changes in pulling site because of super sandy. -- superstorm sandy. jamestown, north carolina. thanks for waiting. this is republican line joe. hello. caller: yes, good morning. i'm not going to keep you long. what i'm going to say is that when i talked with mitt romney, when i saw mitt romney out there, i've watched mitt romney for a long time and all of it's weapon. i'm very satisfied and i'm very confident that he's made it and he made it the right way and the wrong way. i'm not jealous and i'm glad that he's been blessed. also no -- when he talked about jeep and the united autoworkers and chrysler, he was correct. it was put down during a conference last week. i know that when you are an investor, you do have certain rights and you do have certain laws under the tax code and there's a lot of things that i could just sit here and talk about but i'm not. i'm going to let somebody else hold the ring. host: so why have you decided to vote or not vote? caller: well, i'm going to vote. and i'm voting for mitt romney. but here is th
anything anymore. that is your this country is headed. host: were you affected by hurricane sandy up in beverly, new jersey? and what is your feeling about chris christie? caller: governor chris christie, i was not affected, just the power was out for a day. we did not get a whole lot of damage in my area. but governor chris christie -- if he has to go to the government to get help, that is what fema is there for. fema is there to help the state with catastrophes. host: greta. host: in montana, that race has not been called, results with more than half of the vote counted early this morning, they show that jon tester holds a five point lead over denny. 48% to 45%. the most expensive race in montana history. over $40 million is the tablet. moving on to north dakota, this has not been called either. the democratic challenger there it is tied 50% to 50%. we will continue to watch this race and let you know how it turns out. moving on to arizona. these are some of the closely watched senate races. jeff flake wins in that state, 50% over richard handpicked by president obama to ron. and t
view, katrina, you saw it, sandy give some impetus to dealing with climate change. i said, in new york, we will pay for climate change one way or another. we can pay for it after each natural disaster -- in new york, we have had three or 4100-year disasters -- or four 100-year disasters. irene, sandy. it will give some impetus to deal with climate change. even if we cannot reach compromise on that, there are lots of things that we can reach compromise on and that would be on the agenda. the fourth thing i put on the agenda, i talked about earlier in reference to your question. maybe we can get some real financial reform. republicans are beginning to rethink super pacs. they have not produced the positive results they hope for and they have produced negative results that they did not expect. >> if a deal is reached before the end of the year, does that remove the need for tax reform, more comprehensive tax reform next year? >> my view is that corporate tax reform should be treated separately. why? to make corporate tax reform work, you should not have revenue increases. you are putting
